Transcripts & References
A transcript is a copy of the graduate’s courses, final grades, and clinical performance evaluation. It is sent on request to schools/colleges or State Boards of Nursing. The graduate must authorize the release of this information. One transcript will be provided at no cost to the graduate. Additional transcripts are $5.00, payable to OASPN. No transcripts will be issued if the student has an outstanding balance due to OASPN, ONC BOCES or is in default on any Title IV funding.
Health information is released upon the graduate’s authorization to release the information. One copy of the health information will be provided at no cost to the graduate. Additional health information requests will cost $5.00, payable to OASPN. No health information will be issued if the student has an outstanding balance due to OASPN, ONC BOCES or is in default on any Title IV funding.
References are a summary of the student’s skills and work habits and are a service provided by the school to employers who request them. A copy of the student’s final clinical evaluation may be sent if necessary. There is no charge for this copy to the graduate or the employer. Students must sign a release of information form granting permission to release this information. A notation or copy of the reference will be added to the graduate’s school folder. No references will be issued if the student has an outstanding balance due to OASPN, ONC BOCES or is in default on any Title IV funding.
Be sure to include enough identifying information if you request a transcript, health information or reference. Your maiden name or name you attended the program under and year is essential.
References provided by the school are based on the student’s classroom and clinical skills/habits. All references provided by instructors are based upon a professional viewpoint. ONC BOCES is not liable if the outcome of a particular situation (i.e., reference to a potential employee) is seen as undesirable by the student/graduate.
